Mild then Damp

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Labor Day 2022

Brief update for the next couple of weeks, as you enjoy the last holiday of Summer.
Pleasant temperatures on tap for the week, with the warmest afternoons continuing to chart for this Thu through Sat, Sep 8-10.  It may turn WINDY across the eastern portions of the PNW on into the Rocky Mtn states.  Nine Eleven (Sunday) is looking warm, as well, but increasing onshore flow may tap down temps in the western valleys/Puget Sound.  Before peeking at next week, we must take a look at the potential for KAY.  Say what?
????KAY will likely be a Pacific hurricane that could strike quite a wind/rain blow to the coast of Baja.  Although long-range models indicate KAY will weaken rapidly as it skirts the western shores of Baja, the storm should have enough gusto to generate awesome surfing waves along the southern CA coast late next week (yes, your host frequently surfed southern CA in the late 60s - early 70s - we dreamed for these types of storm waves).  Back to the PNW.
The week of Sep 12 - 16 has been trending dry & warm the first few days, then cooling with increasing chance for cloudiness & precipitation by Fri the 16th.  If that pattern verifies, we can expect the weekend of the Mt Angel Octoberfest to be rather cool & wet, with clearing possible late Sunday the 18th.  Quite windy for eastern OR, WA and ID.  Stay tuned.
Mon - Wed, Sep 19-21 charts out as damp early, turning fall cool & dry, with possible high winds across California (the Santa Ana Winds).
Enjoy the holiday.
